Oettinger Boosts VW Golf R, GTI, and GTD
Oettinger has released body kits tailored for the Volkswagen’s Performance trio – Golf R, GTI, and GTD. German tuner is now offering the option of adding individual style to the mix via a new body kit, which also comes with a revised silencer.
The Oettinger body kit has been perfected in wind tunnels to make sure it reaches the highest quality levels demanded by Volkswagen. Up front it adds a new spoiler and bespoke splitter. At the rear, there’s a new rear roof spoiler and purposeful rear diffuser that offers enhanced aerodynamic ability, and the styling of the diffuser aligns perfectly with the look of Oettinger’s side skirts.
For each of the three aforementioned Golf variants, the tuner also will offer three distinct stainless steel exhaust system setups. Thus, the GTD received exhaust tailpipes on the right of the car, the GTI increases its number of tailpipes from two to four, while the R, gets a more honed quad setup. For all models, the exhaust tailpipe is larger (84 mm in diameter) than the stock and features Oettinger custom muffler giving the Golf even more menacing sound. As for the Golf R, the Oettinger goes a step further by offering a valve control.
The Oettinger body kit is available now and costs £3,995 (around $5,000) for the GTD and GTI versions, and £5,225 (around $7,000) for the Golf R. Unfortunately, body kits are currently only available on the U.K market and the company hasn’t stated whether or not it will be available worldwide.
